Where does she have the right to do something like this..On top of all this she is pregnant as well..nothing good is going to come out of this for her..To suffocate a 2 yr old baby, she is insane..She will pay once she is in jail..

When I heard about this story from my mom and she told me who it was, I was in a state of shock. I know the mom and the child personally and am so sad for her. Never in a million years would I have thought that something like this could've happened to such a nice individual.

I also knew the mom and baby personally. I babysat Justice.. And her step-mom cheryl never came off to me like the type that would resort to such a thing. I just wonder what would make her kill the poor kid. I feel terrible for what that baby went thru while being suffocated. Cheryl was always very eerily quiet when she dropped the baby off though.

I'm not saying Cheryl is innocent or guilty...all of the articles state she is charged with "allegedly" suffocating the child. In fact, the articles state the police are not commenting about the case or her motive. There really isn't a whole lot of detail being released, so until there is an actual autopsy report released with a definite cause of death, she is innocent until proven guilty. How do you know she is pregnant herself?

sad. A 20 year old is somewhat young herself to be having a child. I am sure she just snapped from the hassles of having to raise someone else's child. I would never think of harming a child, but they can be a handful for the wrong person.
